obama of helping chrysler and gm move jobs to china. chrysler says it is a big lie. gm says it is a big lie. the "detroit free press" says it is a big lie. does mitt romney even care about the truth at all? obviously not. we'll get into that and a whole lot more here on the "full court press." but here she is lisa ferguson out in los angeles. >> good morning everyone. mitt romney is headed to florida today to host events with senator marco rubio and jeb bush. he starts off the date in tampa and then heads to coral gables and jacksonville. paul ryan will be campaigning in wisconsin. some are calling the pair's reemergence on the campaign trial after supposedly taking time out out of respect for the hurricane victims. romney's official reason for the event yesterday was to collect donations for storm victims, but it sure looked a lot like a campaign, a big american flag on the wall campaign music, crowds and the press were invited. voters had to wait to drop off their donations until romney arrived to collect them himself. john mccain even went as far as to blas
debunked. he said chrysler was thinking about moving its jeep operations to china. that was despite the fact that chrysler had come out with a statement on its website saying no, that is not the case, they are not moving its operations of jeep over to china. so it is a sign that yes, they are concerned about that position on the auto bailout and he is getting pounded relentlessly on the airwaves with obama campaign ads talking about that very stance. >> brianna, you say the obama campaign is pleased with where they are in ohio. in terms of their ground game, in terms of the number of people they have on the ground in ohio, how does it compare to romney campaign? >> compared to the romney campaign, i think they would say that they are doing better in terms of their ground game. they say this about a lot of battleground states because they've had this in place for years now, since the last election, and it never really went away. so this is something they are emphasizing now and the strategy for president obama is really to show up, to visit. he will be traveling monday, tuesday, wedn
's prescription. he said if gm and chrysler had gone into a free fall bankruptcy, they would have taken the entire supply chain and auto agency with it. he said that in 2010. so that's really what -- >> speculation is not accurate. >> it is because there was no way that private capital were going to keep those companies alive into a chapter 11 reorganization. they would have gone into liquidation. we would have lost not only those two companies, but the supply chain. >> what he said, these are his words, the american auto industry is vital to our national interest as employer and hub for manufacturing, a managed bankruptcy may be the only path the industry needs. ultimately, isn't that what happened? a managed bankruptcy by the u.s. government. >> a lot of help by the u.s. government and they would have never gotten there. the group working on this, went to his old company and said would you put some money in this in front of the bankruptcy. they said no. i think the u.s. had to step in at that paint and the taxpayers are going to get all or most of their money back as a result. >> i don't know ab
about in the past where governor romney says that chrysler is going to make jeeps in china, and the president says that the ceos of these companies have asked governor romney to stop making the ad and that governor romney is trying to scare people. the president's top two advisors came to talk to the press and said this is back-firing on governor romney and people here don't like it. it is on the covers of some newspapers around the state. no evidence that's showing up in the polls, though, so we have to see how that plays out but they are betting big that the bailout is going to pull out an ohio win for them. we'll see. >> all right. jessica, thanks. jim, thanks as well. >>> joining me now, cnn political analysts gloria borger, david gergen and chief national correspondent, john king. john, the campaigns say they are ready for late night waiting for ohio returns. what do the latest polls tell us? >> if you look at our new poll today, it tells you the campaigns are right. we've got essentially a dead heat. the president has a 50% to 47% for governor romney lead among likely
jeeps to the united states. so jeep chrysler came out, fiat, the company, they said, absolutely wrong. general motors, have you ever heard of a company which has got a deal with whoever the next president is, come out and scold the presidential candidate the way there is. everybody we talked to says mitt romney is flat out wrong on this. and, again, we're puzzled that he would do that. he's competitive in ohio. this is a dead heat. statistically a dead heat between romney and obama. very puzzling to hear how this is going over here. >> and just to add to that, the swing voters we're talking to here, there is a sense that this issue resonated. the front pages, the local newspaper here is about romney on the auto industry. >> people are mad. >> and it is registering as an unforced error. people take it very personally here, their jobs, their local economy is connected to the auto bailout and stimulus package according to the mayor here. >> yeah. and, john, listen, the president has a tough sell. it may be an easier sell for mitt romney and the reason i say that is because when everyone
took gm into bankruptcy and sold chrysler to italian who is are going to build jeeps in china. >> of course it turns out it's not true. the company ceo told governor romney himself knock it off. >> reporter: the squabble over that spot has made headlines here in ohio, the obama campaign hit back on air. >> politics at its cynical worst. >> reporter: on a stump the president is casting it as part of a larger message. >> massaging the facts when they're inconvenient to your campaign, that's definitely not change. that's the oldest trick in the book. yeah. that's what governor romney's been doing these last few weeks. and i know what real change looks like because i've fought for it. right along side you. and after all we've been through together, we sure can't give up now. >> report from cnn's jessica yellin. she's with the president in lima, ohio, right now. we'll speak with her later. we have reporters all over the country right now getting ready for tuesday's election. they're in all the key battleground states. much more coming up from all of these reporters. meanwhile, the
companies gm and chrysler to foreign. nowhere in the ads does it mention romney opposed the auto bailout. gm officials blasted the spot to a detroit newspaper saying no amount of campaign politics at its cynical worst will diminish our record of creating jobs in the u.s. and repate rating properties back to this country. polls receiving high marks for his handling of superstorm sandy, it's unclear how much the race has changed. hoping to recapture the momentum he had before the storm, romney recycled a line of attack he used presandy. >> he's been out talking about how he's going to save big bird and then playing silly word games with my last name, or first. and then attacking me day in and day out. >> reporter: the storm also interrupted romney's closing argument which he was supposed to start delivering last monday. instead, he has five days left to make his case against a president who has emerged from sandy perhaps now tougher to beat. wolf. >> jim acosta on the campaign trail with mitt romney. devastated barely begins to describe what happened to staten island, new york, in the wake of
